Conservatory student lands two new roles

Congratulations to Patel Conservatory student Elizabeth Harvath who recently booked two professional theater jobs!

Alice in Wonderland, Jr.
Harvath was recently cast in Ruthless at the Winter Park Playhouse in Orlando, and as Clara in A Nutty Nutcracker at the Orlando Repertory Theatre.

Since winning the 2010 Tampa’s Got Talent competition, the past year has been an intensive one, according to Meredith Harvarth, Elizabeth’s mother.
Elizabeth studied dance and theater last year, was in Alice in Wonderland, Jr. in the spring, and, this summer, took part in the Next Generation Ballet Junior Summer Intensive. She also takes dance classes at another studio.
“On top of that we went to every audition for film and show we could manage,” said Meredith.

Elizabeth even auditioned in NYC, Atlanta and North Carolina. In Atlanta, she got a call back for the tour of A White Christmas. Locally, she was an extra in the upcoming movie A Dolphin Tale, filmed in Clearwater.
Elizabeth gets ready for an audition for
Annie in New York City.
Finally, dedication and hard work paid off for the 12-year-old performer with her two new roles. She has solo songs in both shows.
Despite her busy travel and rehearsal schedule coming up, Elizabeth is currently enrolled in both our youth theater and youth ballet programs and takes classes when she can.
“Her ballet training and musical theater training from the Patel Conservatory continue to prepare her for opportunities like this," said Meredith.


  1. So happy for you Elizabeth! You deserve it.
